2013 NFL Draft Rumors: Oakland Raiders Could Trade Down With Detroit Lions


Along with the Atlanta Falcons, another team the Raiders could trade down with in the NFL Draft would be the Detroit Lions.

Tony Pauline of NFL Draft Insider (via Rant Sports) reports that the trade “would be considered” if tackles Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher are available.

Detroit owns the fifth selection, while Oakland selects third overall, so this trade is certainly plausible if everything comes together.

Regardless, the Raiders’ phone lines will likely be buzzing when they are on the clock on Thursday.
